Chitosan Nanoparticles Prepared from Lucilia Cuprina Maggots as Antibacterial Agent


Chitosan were prepared from cuticle of Lucilia cuprina maggots with two steps; deproteinization and deacetylation. It was characterized with solubility and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). Chitosan was ball-milled to obtain the chitosan nanoparticles which characterized with dynamic light scattering (DLS) and transmission electron microscope… (More)
